      Info From Ian Prescott (2016)
      "Hannah seems to think that one of them (Jack or Florence) was buried at Abram St John the Evangelist but I have not been able to confirm this from the parish records. I suspect that both of them were also cremated at the aforementioned Crematorium (Wigan Ince Crematorium)."

      Info From Jean Davies (2016)
      "He was very sick in the end. His kidneys failed and he was in and out of hospital."
